Check your insurance policy. I'm sure there is liability there.

More than 1 million people went to emergency departments for trampoline-related injuries between 2002 and 2011, with nearly 300,000 of those injuries involving broken bones, according to a new study.

And these injuries don’t come cheap — the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics study showed that the total emergency department expenses for them was $1 billion, and more than $400 million for fractures specifically.


What you really care about is making sure that they are taking the risk so just create a lease addendum that gives them permission and makes them assume liability. Everyone wins and you don't feel like a jerk for taking a trampoline away from kids.

Thank you very much for this reply - I am still concerned because I believe the tenant needs to have liability insurance for this, and at the end of the day it is a huge risk.

Then they need to ad it to their insurance. Either way check with your insurance broker. That is what I would do. This question has been asked about above ground pools as well.

Yes, for sure. It seems to me that it would be too much risk regardless, and thank you.
